Hospice explores the role of the interdisciplinary hospice team members through home visits with various team members (to include nursing, social work, and spiritual team members) and interdisciplinary team meetings. Through a partnership with the Sentara Center for Healthcare Ethics, students receive Complete Advance Care Planning (ACP) to become advance care planning champions.
Medical students complete their own advance care planning documents, reflect on cultural variability in patient experience of the end of life process, and work to overcome the misconceptions and stigma associated with hospice and advance care planning impact quality of life.
